Did Black voters propel California’s gay marriage ban to victory? Many angry opponents of that ban — a ballot measure known as “Proposition 8” — seem to think so.

Just check out this comment left by a white, gay reader of, in response to Jack White’s article thanking white voters for their help in electing Barack Obama:

“You’re welcome. I hope one day to be able to thank black voters (as a demographic block, I mean) for enabling me to get married to someone of my own sex. Or at least to have the key rights that come with marriage–for example, having the right to visit a lifelong partner in the hospital if he or she were deathly ill. I hope that the blacks who turned out in record numbers in California to vote for Obama but who helped get Proposition 8 passed will rethink that latter decision, and the elements of their faith that led them to make it.”

But Shanikka at is not having it:

“[I will] try and put to rest, once and for all, this virulently racist idea that Black people are to blame for the passage of Proposition 8 here in California.  It is an idea grounded in utter myth, a complete lack of knowledge about anything related to Black people’s presence in California, and just plain old scapegoating.”
